Mommy See, Mommy Do

by bkhoury on June 30, 2011

Yesterday we were enjoying a beautiful afternoon in the backyard. We had the baby pool with it’s ice cold water filled up, the hose on full speed and the unsteady blow-up slide positioned just so. Will, always so helpful, was in charge of the hose. I was multi-tasking on my iphone while keeping one eye on the boys. And then the tri-fecta happened. I answered a call, Will sprayed Hunter full-on with water and mommy had a blow up, resulting in Will immediately being sent to time-out. Read More

Three-Year-Old Peer Pressure

by bkhoury on June 02, 2011

It’s hard to tell if our kids’ food likes and dislikes are part of their changing taste cycles or something more sinister at work. I do know that since my three-year old has started attending pre-school a few times a week, he has become much pickier. He brings his lunch, and I try to make sure it is chock full of healthy foods – or at least not processed, high sodium, preservative-laden foods. Read More
